at home, this is what president george w. bush's exit from the international stage looked like. >> so what if the guy threw a shoe at me? >> that happened during george w. bush's final trip to the two war zones he led america into as president. make no mistake, i certainly do not condone shoe throwing or any other kind of attempted assault or disrespect of a world leader for that matter. but the shoe throwing incident was sort of emblematic of bush era foreign policy. george w. bush did not play well with others on the international stage. and by the time he left office, his foreign policy agenda was deeply unpopular both overseas and at home. and that's where mitt romney's foray into foreign policy leadership comes in. with the modern disasters of his debut behind him, he granted an interview with an israeli newspaper ahead of his visit. the newspaper is part owned by billionaire donor sheldon adelson, so there's that. what is really important about the interview is that mitt romney, what mitt ram gnaw had to say about foreign policy. when asked about his response to the foreign response
george w. bush, george w. bush, george w. bush. car going back in the ditch and conde is driving it. >> dana: think of the video. >> andrea: exactly. one romney source told me months ago the goal of their campaign was to do no harm. and i think if they are going to do no harm, they will go with a safe bet, someone like rob portman, someone like -- >> eric: can i? >> andrea: very boring. >> eric: that is the problem with the romney campaign. >> bob: right. >> eric: i mentioned in the "a" block. they are defending boos, defending bank, defending bain. >> dana: not alcohol. >> eric: get off the defense and take the ball. >> bob: you don't -- >> greg: they need alan west. it would blow everybody up. >> bob: it certainly would. >> dana: including bob's head. >> bob: if you are trying to become president don't play it safe. if you are incumbent, you say yes. the way they are doing this, if they take portman, it's not, vice presidents don't give you much. we know that. maybe a few points. rubio could give you a few points and win florida. the rest of the people -- >> andrea: playing a safe
speech and it really hurt george h.w. bush get re-elected that year. so sarah palin is not very popular in this country. especially with certain constituencies that they're trying to woo. mitt romney is in israel right now trying to get jewish votes in the united states. obama got 78% of jews the last time. in large part because sarah palin was on the ticket. so if he wants those jewish votes in ohio and florida, mitt romney wants to move away from sarah palin. on the other hand, if he moves too far away, he alienates the palin supporters in states like iowa he's going to need for his base. he's in a tough spot on palin. >> very, very difficult spot there. does liz cheney do damage to her credibility saying sarah palin is more qualified than barack obama and joe biden combined? i don't know many republicans who are honestly going to say that? >> that was a little over the top. she was trying to clean up for the old man and she had to show her loyalty to sarah palin and the tea party folks. they should not be underestimated. you know, the most vivid demonstration of the power of the tea
from, we faced the biggest job losses since the great depression, that's what george w. bush and his failed policies left to us. we have put together as a nation, under president obama's leadership, 28 months of private sector jobs growth. would we like to be happening faster? you bet we would. we have to admit that the tea party republican congress has done everything in their power to stall this recovery. you know what, perhaps they might succeed. but our direction remains a direction forward. no one can argue the fact that last year, we created more jobs last year than were created in all of the eight years of george w. bush, that happened in 2010 as well. we need to keep moving forward. it would be great if the people of our country make change and put in some people who will create jobs. >> governor jindal, what about that point, this is forward motion, it is job creation and more, overall, than the bush administration created? >> well, terry, let's look at the facts of the full four years, where president obama has been president, we have lost more than 500,000 jobs. you look a
. on policy, george w. bush advocated for comprehensive immigration reform. he reached out to democrats like ted kennedy to reach out the broken immigration system in a bipartisan way. he failed, of course, but at least he tried on the policy. and on politics the bush team did so much outreach to the hispanic community that he managed to increase his share of the hispanic vote from 2000 to 2004 when he was dramatically less popular overall. george w. bush got 42% of the hispanic vote in 2004. mitt romney on the other hands, in terms of policy, he's trying to appeal to the public by proposing his immigration policy. he calls it self deportation. he's promising to follow the lead of arizona, of all places, for national immigration law. that sort of outreach has earned him an appeal with hispanic voters that is, look at that, 40 points below president obama. he's even down 18 points from what george w. bush did with hispanic voters. the romney campaign is trying to move the hispanic voters. want to know how? they released this ad yesterday. it features mitt romney's son craig speaking spanish.
spending programs hurt the economy. they have a new bock by the george w. bush institute the four percent solution. i smoke to former governor jeb bush earlier. >> it is great to be with you. >> i see the governors running on campaign of reform and cutting things and geth the budget under control. they get in office and then they beat the day lights out of them because they kept ape campaign promise. scott walker in wisconsin, and rick scott in florida, and so what are we to make of the fact that people don't want them to fulfill the promises? >> i think they do. you earn people's respect over the long hall if people want to be popular than do what is right. i admire what rick scott is doing in florida and scott walker went in a fire storm and came out stronger because of it people want genuine and they want people to understand the concerns and also want leaders and they want people to lay out an agenda and execute on that agenda passion and conviction . >> people don't understand in the state level the budget doesn't have to balance. it is not like the feds who are borrowing money and p
that former president george w. bush and form h.w. bush will both miss the convention. they both decided to skip and one cites health reasons. >>> massachusetts is being considered as the keynote speaker at the democratic convention in september. >>> and "newsday" is reporting that the rental apartment that president obama lived in while studying in columbia, new york, in 1981 is up for grabs. the president paid $360 in rent. well, the price now is $2400. yep. >>> and in a speech event someday louisiana's president hugo chavez calls the capitalist elite like mitt romney. he says deep down he's a good guy. that's your morning dish of scrambled politics. >>> and now here's your first look at how wall street will kickoff the day. the saw opens as 12,822. the s&p tumbled 13 and the nasdaq plunged 40. >>> taking a look at overseas trading this morning, in tokyo the nikkei shot down 161 points while in hong kong the hang seng plummeted 587. >>> so far earning season has been much better than expected but this week reports from three big companies will put the trend to the test. apple reports t
and the candidates who win and watching george w. bush do this through two elections, express confidence and faith in america's future. now, there are r plenty of bromide patriotism in romney's speeches, but the core argument he has is negative. and this is very much the framework the democrats had in 2004 about a different problem, the war in iraq. then you had a president who said i know this is tough, but we've got to stick with it, stay the course and we're going to make it to victory. now, the fs a weird looking victory for him, but that was his sales pitch and you had john kerry saying this is terrible, a disaster. i don't know where i stand or where i did before or where i'm going to stand, but in any case, it's going really badly. people would rather have somebody saying i know this is tough, but i have a way out and america always finds its way out. that's where we're seeing in mirror image today. >> karen, as we said, it's a study in contrast today on the campaign trail and there's one area it's stark. just in terms of pure optic, how does an image like the one we saw of the president in
in the world. >> george w. bush. >> i want to stay connected to the better of community. i'm not going to be a public person. this is a rare interview for me. >> this is "piers morgan tonight" . >> good ef ening the first ted turner, a tv pioneer. but, also, a very out spoken man and a rare interview for president george w. bush. if anyone knows about keeping america great is a former american president.
. but had's making the outreach. george w. bush did it as a candidate but then went several years without showing up at the naacp as president. >> yes, he did. i remember. he went in 2000 and never appeared again. >> yeah. i think -- i at tend he may have appeared at the naacp group. yeah, you are right. basically, though, a lot of antipathy built up over the years because of that. romney is making the outreach. he gets points for that. he also is running against the first black president. and so the fact he shows up as important. he made good points. i thought the idea of school choice is a great issue to go after the black vote with because democrats are tied to the futures union, opposed to anything involved in choice. rank and file, black folks like it. the problem was, you know, once again, he had the words but not the music. i think -- you know. in that way he -- he didn't win a lot of black votes today. >> part of romney's problem is, one, he's mitt romney. also, he's the presumptive nominee of a party that by generally speaking has either ignored african-americans or scapegoated a
presidential leadership. as mr. romney was leaving on this foreign trip, it was announced that george w. bush, the last republican president, will not be going to the convention that will nominate mr. romney next month. and as mr. romney returns from this trip, it is announced that former vice president dick cheney will not be going to the convention either. mr. cheney telling abc news he plans to go fishing instead. so the olympics, not just the trip, but the metaphor, is apt here. this is a passing of the torch. the republican party this week is insuring that the existing torch holders are in fact going to hand it over. but the guy they're trying to hand it over to at this point in his campaign seems more apt to light himself metphorically on fire with that torch than to run it anywhere. joining us now is john harwood, cnbc's chief washington correspondent. thank you for your time. nice to see you. >> hi, ms. leader. >> you can call me anything. after five days of vacation at this point, i'm impuvious to insult. how are republicans in d.c. reacting to the romney overseas trip? is this accom
the former labor secretary under president george w. bush. okay, david. i'm going to let you take a swing at this right off the bat. because when i saw these numbers come down, i thought to myself, wait a second. it wasn't too long ago when i believe it was senator obama complaining that george w. bush thought 200 or 300,000 jobs added was a good number. this is 80,000 jobs. this cannot be spun as good news for americans. >> it's not good news for america. let's recall though that obama made that complaint before we suffered the biggest financial crisis in american history, you know, after the wall street crash of 1929. we lost 9 million jobs as a result of that crisis when obama took office, we were hemorrhaging 700,000 jobs a month. unemployment hit 10%. so in many ways we have come a long way. we haven't lost any jobs in the last two years. we are making progress. clearly not enough progress. in retrospect that stimulus was not nearly big enough in 2009. that american jobs act that the president tried to pass last september should have been enacted by congress. we're paying the price f
, which is fine. in the words of george w. bush, you don't forget poland. but how do you go on your big presidential trip as a presidential candidate and not going to afghanistan? how do you not go to where we're still at war? in an interview today with brian williams, he turned down the opportunity to criticize the president on foreign policy, being on foreign soil and what not. but if you compare mitt romney's foreign policy and obama's foreign policy, you see mitt is very good at used the tough-sounding words but is less good at differentiating himself from the president. joining us now is spencer ackman, national security writer, a friend of mine, and somebody who has dug deep into romney's foreign policy. good to see you. you wrote a great piece today, and the kite title was "the five things we learned about how mitt romney would run the world." number one is he seems to run the world when it comes to afghanistan, egypt, and iran a lot like obama is running the world. >> a lot like if romney hired obama's aides but they had nothing but bad things to say about themselves. you get a
w. bush making it perfectly clear he has no interest in joining the public discourse. in a recent interview, mr. bush talked about his role as former president and why he's staying out of the public eye. >> i think it's bad for the presidency to have former presidents believe yating, opining, or telling people how it ought to be done. eight years was awesome, and i was famous and i was powerful, but i have -- i have no desire for fame and power anymore. i -- i don't want to undermine our president. whoever is president. and a former president can do that. and i think it's bad for the presidency itself. either you're in or out of politics, peter. and i've chosen to be out. i mean you can't be halfway. you know, and given the environment today, with all the blogs and this that and the other i mean it's like, you know, i told -- i -- pretty unattractive metaphor, but i said i crawled out of the swamp and i'm not crawling back in. and you know, i'm interested in politics. i'm -- you know, i'm a supporter of mitt romney. i hope he does well. but, you know, he can do well without me. >>

last three presidents would be mitt romney, barack obama and george w. bush, three men who personally have very little love for politics, very little love for the sport of it all, very little love or understanding of the grand sweep of history, unlike say a bill clinton or a ronald reagan or an fdr. there just doesn't seem to be the joy in these guys either on the campaign trail or when they're governing. they seem to be -- well, at least the two that are running this time technocrats. >> they're competitive without being cheerful. i any what mark just said is exactly right, that politicians get in trouble when they act as though they're pundits or color commentators. you think about obama -- wandered into the truth but that editorial meeting in washington state in 2008 when he said reagan was transformative but clinton wasn't. >> nevada. >> reno. >> however true that might be, it was the wrong way to say it. >> you can't say it as a presidential candidate. >> the thing that really struck me about looking at romney in london was his lack of agility. it was this incredibly stiff presen
work quite well for george h. w. bush, attacking michael dukakis' jobs record in massachusetts saying he claimed there was a massachusetts miracle, it wasn't living up to -- to -- to the numbers. same things with bain capital here. if he is running as somebody who create jobs, we found real humans who lost their jobs because of decisions he made. make it so people don't trust him to build the economy and then they are given a choice for president they are toll rating and somebody who can't be trusted to reverse the trend. >> so okay, i want to pick up with something it is kind of an x factor that few people are talking about. you, dave, have in a recent post how the third party can have a major impact even with just a few votes. you cite the elections with both al gore and john mccain. talk about that and how third party candidates can swing the electoral college. >> well, if we are looking at an election where the incumbent is trying to disqualify the challenger, part of that -- people are just going to be dissatisfied with both candidates. in 2008 they liked those candidates n 2004,
, it was -- it was -- we were in a full recovery mode. but it was way too late to save george h.w. bush. >> greta: i don't know how there could be a recovery between now and november by simple indicators, for instance, we are borrowing money, the interest rate is as low as you can get, you can't loosen up money. there are certain indcaishts where i don't know where the margins, where the president's going to see breathing room. have you problems in europe that are not getting better that have an enormous influence on the economy. nonetheless, he's the president and he gets stuck with it. i don't know -- i don't see any indicator in the economy that will help him enormously. >> i don't think we will have a strong rebound between now and election day. but the only point i was trying to make, even if we did, sentiment may have begun to turn in such a way that it's too late. >> greta: is there one ethnick group or demographic, which is key to the independent vote right now? >> well, no. i don't know how -- i couldn't possibly slice up the independent vote and tell you, you know, what its ethnic composition
sense. but the top marginal rate was 39 when president george w. bush came in. cut to 35. i think if we get good deficit reduction, bringing it to 35, i think that helps the economy. >> greta: looking at that and i want to talk to you about health care. but i am curious about the tax question, i see it in the health care and the tax are targeted at a certain economic strat a. i am curious, how much additional revenue -- if you know -- will be in the treasury if the taxes go up as to people who make $250 thrnd or more i. income tax or the health care? >> greta: income. >> the income over a 10- >> greta: one-year period? >> with 10, it's $3... $150 billion for one year. >> greta: one year. i did a little research. that's about -- it costs $10 billion a day to run the federal government. so that's a 15-day, you are asking for 15 days. >> it's a drop in the bucket. here's some other things. we should find a way to fairly restrain entitlement spending, this is a personal view. i think that medicare benefits should not vest until later for younger workers, i would say that if a person's under
? >> reporter: 20 years ago, incumbent president george h.w. bush apologized after referring to the clinton-gore ticket as the two bozos. he told me he was conjuring the voice of democrats who don't take romney serious enough and added he regards romney as formidable candidate. >> john: there was an unusual fundraising pitch by the president today. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: he was aboard air force one friday night returning to the capital. he used a special phone that the campaign pays for to speak to group of prior donors. the truth is that the early money is more valuable than late money the president told the donors. it's fair to say if we wait to the last minute we could be in for a rude surprise. "i have gray hair," he added. "people are disappointed because they had a vision of change happening immediately and turns out it's hard." one of the callers recorded the conversation. >> john: we are hearing about travel arrangements for romney? >> he was slated to attend the summer olympics in london. we have confirmed that he plans to visit israel this summer for the sec
. people want to defeat president obama. george w. bush would win the election if he were on the ticket. and he would have the the enthusiastic support of republicans. >>neil: what about independents? still blame bush for much. >>governor huckabee: history will judge him far better than the editorial. >>neil: i agree. >>governor huckabee: they will look back more favorably. many things he did that are quite admirable. >>neil: but condoleeza rice is attached to a more controversial thing on the war and that is baggage. we can argue about that but that is still controversial. >>governor huckabee: a gathering in utah that romney had a lot of the finance people and the financial bundlers, and she was a speaker, and gave a rousing speech, and was well received, and, so, people started giving the buzz. now i have seen the headlines, but, that happens every few days. someone else is the buzz of the day. i don't honestly think she is that seriously considering it. she has been so adamant she doesn't like politics. he is a policy person not a political person. >>neil: they all say that. >>govern
of nevada and financial hurdles facing voters there. former deputy assistant to george w. bush and chris former chief of staff to senator joe manchon. i'm going to start with you, chris. president obama is going to attending a convention in reno. as we know nevada's economy is depressed. high foreclosures. what can the president say to gain support there? >> i think the president needs to make the argument why he has a better vision than governor romney. with the economic policies, social policies, in this case the veterans issues. he has done a lot of in terms of veterans and focusing on veterans during his precedency. nevada has been a tough hit state economically. high foreclosures, he is going to address that, but i think one of key distinctions between the two candidates, which one better understands you. look at all the polls. the poll that stands out again and again. again, if you look at the polls, one that stands out again and again. that is huge advantage for the president. >> arthel: people want to be understood, they want their problems to be understood but they want results.
. published. but it comes from the george w. bush institute. the forward is by him, but the rest of it is made up of all the different economists on every different subject you can imagine. i read a couple of chapters today. it's excellent. >> greg: give me the b
, if there were a lot of republicans saying no to president george w. bush in the republican national convention. i didn't see it. >> we should stress you're an encyclopedia on that. at that point, president-elect was unpopular and john kerry, 6 to # points ahead. >> there are a few examples this year of republican candidates, senator hellers from nevada, not going to the republican national convention. so there's about five of them. but if you look at the amount of democrats not going to the democratic national convention, we're well over a dozen candidates and those elected running for reelection. there's more to come, this is a very high number. >> if you're the president and get reelected, do you remember the folks who dissed in. >> in some cases i think he probably encourages them to -- i think in claire mccass cal as case he probably suggests she doesn't. he wants to retain the senate if he wants to get anything done. it's his advantage to have those do what they have to do to stay in office. >> all right, good seeing you again. have a great 4th. >> same to you. >>> coming up. >> i am payi
action forum and was the congressional budget office director under president george w. bush. nice to see you, sir. >> nice to be here. >> greta: how bleak is this? >> this is a very, very big threat to the u.s. economy. the fiscal cliff itself is a combination of $400 billion in increased taxes, $200 billion in spending cuts. that combination $600 billion is about 4% of gdp. 4% of the national income. since we are only growing at 2% it doesn't take a genius to realize if you drop that kind of hit on it the economy will go into a big recession. >> greta: when do you predict, let's say that the tax cuts are not extended when did you you predict we are going into the horrible recession although many people think we are still in one. >> the concern is we are growing at 1.5%, 2% anded is taxes going from 15 to 45%. businesses looking at big increases in the classes. middle class is going to see their taxes go up with the alternative minimum tax. as the fall progresses we will see worse and worse economic performance and bear the brunt of the fiscal cliff in advance and i worry about that a lo
